As far as gnome-session was concerned, it didn't start because of the
missing exec in .xinitrc. I thought I'd mention this since I haven't
modified .xinitrc at all, and many other users probably haven't either.
Thus, they might not even start gnome-session, even though a gnome
session was selected under gdm.

I've been running the Gnome2 packages under experimental. This session
started unmodified.

Very little. .xsession-errors is empty, the following is .gnome-errors:

***** BEGIN .gnome-errors *****

You may only run one window manager

I'll try and get them posted later today. I'll send you a URL to them.

I have one box that is 'pristine' (never run the experimental packages
on it, pure sid). I'll make those available too.
